Get excited — there’s a new doc in town!
Elite Dental is proud to announce their latest addition to their already fantastic team of dental professionals.
About Dr. Megan Morrow
Dr. Morrow was born and raised in Centreville, Virginia. She attended Boston College for her undergraduate studies where she was captain of the women’s swim team. She moved to Seattle where she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree at the University of Washington.
After ten years in Seattle, Dr. Morrow and her husband moved back to the D.C. metro area. She lives in D.C. and is having the best time getting reacquainted with the area.
What is your treatment plan philosophy?
I believe wholeheartedly that I’m treating people, not just their teeth. I like to get to know my patients and involve them in the entire treatment planning process. I practice conservative, comprehensive dentistry, and focus on educating my patients so that we can come up with a plan that works for both of us to best achieve their dental goals.
What are your favorite aspects of dentistry?
The technology is always changing in dentistry (as with the rest of the world), so staying on top of the education and research allows me to follow my passion for perpetual learning. I far exceed the licensing requirements for continuing education to make sure I’m up-to-date with the latest techniques. Dentistry is the perfect combination of technology, art and science, and all three keep me fascinated on a daily basis.
What are some tips for managing dental anxiety?
There are multiple studies that support more than half of the population has some form of dental anxiety which I do not take lightly! It’s natural to have some anxiety before a dental visit, but I’ve found it helps to at least vocalize your feelings and fears. From there, we can discuss ways to make your visit more comfortable.
We have everything from overhead TVs to help you watch your favorite shows while you’re in the chair, to sedation options for the very fearful. The number one tip I could give however, would be to maintain regular visits. The more you put off dental visits, the more issues and time intensive procedures in the future.
What is the best overall advice you would give your patients?
A healthy mouth is a healthy body. The link between oral health and heart disease is real; maintaining regular cleanings and check-ups can not only prevent expensive dental procedures and visits in the future, but can also prevent systemic conditions.
As much as I love seeing my patients, the less I see of them outside of regular cleanings means they’re taking excellent care of their teeth!
Elite Dental is conveniently located in Clarendon, about 2 blocks from the Clarendon Metro stop.

The cleaning industry is a dirty business. Illegal practices are widespread and worker exploitation is normal. As businesses increasingly misclassify their employees as contractors, workers lose out on pay, benefits and legal protection.
Well-Paid Maids is changing that. We are the D.C. area’s first and only living-wage home cleaning service, where all employees make at least $17/hour and receive a full benefits package, including 22 paid days off, health, dental and vision insurance, 100% employer-paid short-term disability insurance, 100% employer-paid commuting costs, unemployment insurance and workers’ compensation insurance.
We are proud to support the living-wage movement and hope our company can serve as an example of what’s possible.
By creating an ethical alternative, we provide our customers with a cleaning service that matches their values. Not only is this the moral thing to do, it means we employ the happiest, hardest-working people in the business. Book an appointment today at www.wellpaidmaids.com and see the difference a living-wage makes.
You won’t regret it!
Founder, Well-Paid Maids

Situated on a 10,000 square foot lot on a cul-de-sac within steps of the Fort CF Smith parkland and only one light to D.C., you’ll appreciate the proximity to the GW Parkway, Georgetown, Amazon’s HQ2 and so much more.
This is a distinctive home with over 4,400 square feet of living space. On the main level there is a living and dining room, powder room, kitchen with beautiful blue eco-friendly “ice stone” countertops, family room with wood burning fireplace, and sliding doors leading out to the deck from both the family room and the breakfast area.

Address: 3430 N. Randolph Street
Neighborhood: Broyhill Forest
Open: Sunday, July 21 from 1-3 p.m.
To say this home has it all is not at all unrealistic when you consider the spacious 6,875 finished sq. ft. which encompasses 6 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, home office, living room, dining room, great room/sunroom with 2-sided fireplace, kitchen with breakfast nook, wet bar, pantry, mudroom and full lower level entertainment room with wet bar and exercise room.
However, it may be this home’s dark-cladded wall of windows at the back of the main level that is its most impressive feature (not to mention the fantastic view into the beautiful backyard).
Neutral interiors allow for endless possibilities when it comes to adding one’s personal touch later through furnishings and décor, and yet, neutrals are anything but boring to begin with. Playful greyscale schematics are carried out throughout the home from rich espresso cabinetry and bright white countertops to gray and white tile bath patterns. The juxtaposition of warm wood and cool marble tones throughout the home is both striking and refreshing.
This home is truly one-of-a-kind. Join us Sunday, July 21 from 1-3 p.m. for an open house event featuring this gorgeous home by local Arlington builder Classic Cottages.
Schools: Jamestown Elementary School, Williamsburg Middle School and Yorktown High School.
